Go with something better in the price range.

  • Summary: Alright, so even after reading the reviews (about half 1 star to half 5 star,) I decided that I would try my luck with ordering this headset. Bad decision. First off, the audio quality is fantastic, but that's not the purpose of this device. It's designed as an xbox headset and does not perform well. Unless the game allows you to turn down the game volume within game (like BF3), then the game will always drown out the chat volume, which sucks.

Good while it worked

  • Summary: The Chimaera 5.1 was purchased to enjoy 5.1 sound and not bothering anyone in the vicinity (wife :)). While it worked I enjoyed the sound and construction, I usually got 4-5 hours on a full charge, communicating with friends also worked fine - crisp and controllable. However, lately (~10 months after purchase) for some reason it started to turn the volume down till it gets mute by itself which makes it impossible to use if you are not willing to push volume up button...

  • Pros: It looks great....
  • Cons: 3.5mm audio is distorted when listening to music vocals are some how lowered to a whisper while the instruments are turned WAY up... When playing MW3 on my xbox the sound gets cranked up so loud i feel like my head is going to explode and when i turn it back down to a reasonable level 2 seconds later right back up

  • Summary: Leider ist das Headset viel zu groß für meinen Kopf. Unten an der Ohrmuchel liegt es garnicht auf und oben sitzt es veil zu fest.

Headset zu teuer und zu unbequem

T. Schur, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: Im Prinzip wirklich sein solides Headset. Allerdings bin ich nach langem testen und benutzen sehr enttäuscht vom Tragekomfort. Die Starke Basslastigkeit geht in Ordnung, könnte allerdings ein bisschen weniger sein (führt aber hier nicht zum Sterneabzug). Die Bedienbarkeit ist auch OK. Der Stumm-Sensor beim hochklappen des Mikros tut nicht wirklich immer richtig. Das ist schade. Alles in allem würde ich das Headset nicht mehr kaufen.
